BEST OF 2014 – SWEDISH ARTISTS PICKS (PART 1)

 
Now I told you about my favourite Swedish albums of the year (#1 / #2, #3, #4 / #5, #6, #7 / #8, #9, #10), here come the opinions of Swedish artists Absolut Noise do like. I asked them to send me their “top 5 list of what they will remember from 2014, especially in music, especially within Sweden”. Some made it short, others went long. Thanks to all of them for their time!

PS : there are plenty of artists mentioned here, I did not link to all of them but I guess you can google the ones you are curious about, right? :-)

Today, part 1, a special one with four brilliant members of The Bear Quartet, one of my fav Swedish band. Well, sure, they might have split. But maybe not. Who actually knows?
